We’ll Be Back

Our Board is committed to providing our usual outstanding programs but we have come to the conclusion that with the COVID crisis, business and personal challenges, and Zoom fatigue, it is wise to put our programs on hold for the time being.

The decision wasn’t made lightly, but truly out of respect for the substantive speakers/programs we’ve offered, lively discussions that have ensued, and the wonderful people we’ve gathered. We know we’re not alone in being hamstrung by C-19.

While our primary gift to our colleagues is great programming with the opportunity for natural networking in an in-person community, the digital medium is simply inadequate – for now — to deliver what we excel at. We will be back with outstanding programing and the valuable community-building that we’ve been known for!


BVF is a non-profit, non-membership organization providing business owners and influencers, C-suite execs and other professionals with a compelling line-up of vibrant speakers who address the vital issues at the forefront of developing, growing and sustaining an organization’s value.

BVF was formed in 2017 by a core group of Southern New England business owners and advisors along with Bryant University to offer educational programs focused on the contemporary business challenges encountered at each stage of the business life-cycle … from inception to ownership transition.

The organization fosters a collegial environment that encourages information-sharing and idea-generation amidst the richness of the learning experience. Past events have focused on unlocking creativity, sustaining value of family businesses, standing apart from the competition and more.

Our programs are held in the Bello Center, in the heart of the Bryant University campus four times per year.
